Mayors team up to present

Mayor of Boston Marty Walsh and Belfast Lord Mayor John Finucane present the Person of the Year Award to Gerard Rice at the recent 23rd annual Aisling Awards in Belfast. Mr. Rice heads an inner-city community run leisure center which has extended its opening hours from 25 hours a week to 90 hours under his tenure, and it has become a sanctuary for asylum seekers and newcomers in South Belfast.
